devil in the details!

The New York Times published a very interesting article about a tattoo artist specializing in nipple tattoos on breast cancer patients after mastectomy. According to the article, many women after mastectomy aren’t fully satisfied with their breast reconstruction surgeries as reconstructed breats lack nipples which takes away from the experience and attempts to regain what was lost. Many surgeons perform nipple tattoos but they lack skills to create a good tattooed rendition of a nipple. The tattoo artist described in the NYT article is Vinnie Myers. He started specializing in nipple tattooing in 2002 and been working in this field ever since.

Interestingly enough, in another newspaper/ magazine there appeared article stating that plastic surgeons usually responsible for doing nipple tattoos on breast cancer patients could learn from tattoo artists.
